Beyond its just across the A1A and the south end of the beach. Its was close to the port for us and was a $15 cab ride from the cruise port and around $15 to the airport.
The hotel lobby was nice. I would give it a 3 star. Once you get to the elevator and hallways and rooms, it gets dirty and worn looking. Stains on carpets, our curtains had a big rip in them, air conditioning vent was packed with dust. Noisy from hallways and exterior windows were not cleaned. Tub was rusted on the drain, tiles worn, vanity needed repair, carpet was dirty in the room. Elevator was vandalized, dated and for some reason really slow. I think you get the point.
We got an online deal for $129 a night Marina view. The view was excellent, it had marine and beach view. Also the Jungle Queen cruise was a stones throw away.
Relaxed by the pool and it had a nice beach bar at it.
Check-in was difficult. They mixed up my name with a previous guest that checked in under my name. The only reason I caught it was the nightly rate was different then I saw it wasn't even my name. My last name was spelt a bit different but the first names were not even close.
Even at a discounted rate I would not return, I would like to try something a little more North on the beach.
Check parking rates. We didn't have a car but they looked steep to me.
